The Stride Center aims to help individuals and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area achieve self-sufficiency. To do so, it provides comprehensive career services to help people with barriers to employment access careers in the technology economy. It operates a social enterprise, ReliaTech, which offers low-cost technology support and tools to underserved communities while providing jobs and paid internships to Stride students and graduates, and 100 percent of its net income supports the Center’s operating expenses. With four locations in the Bay Area, Strive enrolled 346 students and placed 148 people in jobs in 2012. Oakland is the Center’s main hub, with the highest number of enrollments and course offerings.
